Al Qaeda’s youthful new face
A chilling inside report of Al Nusra, the Syrian branch on Al Qaeda. Al Nusra is fighting Bashar Al-Assad’s forces and the Islamic State. What broke my heart was watching 8 year olds sing ‘I am going to fight the Jews’ and yelling that Americans will find their grave in Syria. One of the youngest giggles when he shares his dream to become a suicide bomber. Where normal children would be cracking jokes in the school bus, those kids are chanting Allah Akbar upon arriving at the zoo. Clearly indoctrinated, the blame for this horror lies with their parents, but the sad fact seems to be that they are well on track to become the next killers of the jihad. Which is, as they put it themselves, their destiny.
